Just weeks after what appeared to be his eye-catching cameo in the trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness — despite his own denials — Patrick Stewart is at the heart of the big centrepiece release for Prime Video UK March 2022 as he returns for the second season of Star Trek series Picard.
Elsewhere on the service, Adrian Lyne's long-awaited return to the psychological thriller genre is set to finally grace screens and The Boys earns an animated spin-off.
There's also a documentary about one of the greatest football managers of the modern era and the directorial debut of comedy stalwart Amy Poehler.
Here's what's heading to Prime Video UK in March 2022...
New movies coming to Prime Video in March
Lucy and Desi (4 March)
Just a few months ago, Amazon Studios debuted its Oscar contender Being the Ricardos, in which Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem played Hollywood legends Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Actor and comedian Amy Poehler makes her directorial debut with this non-fiction take on the same two stars, exploring their relationship and the enormous success of their shared sitcom I Love Lucy.

Gehraiyaan (11 March)
This Hindi-language romantic drama follows young woman Alisha (Deepika Padukone), who is drifting in life and still reeling from her mother's suicide after the breakdown of her relationship with Alisha's father. On a weekend away with her cousin Tia (Ananya Panday) and Tia's fiancé Zain (Siddhant Chaturvedi), an affair begins, causing even more turbulence in all three of their lives.
The Postcard Killings (11 March)
Jeffrey Dean Morgan leads the cast of this chilly mystery tale, portraying a New York detective who travels to Europe in an attempt to get to the bottom of his daughter's murder. As his investigation continues, he joins forces with an American journalist working in Sweden. Bosnian Oscar winner Danis Tanović is the man in the director's chair.
Deep Water (18 March)
Adrian Lyne is one of the world's best known directors of erotically-charged, psychological thrillers. In the 80s and 90s, he made his name with films including Fatal Attraction, 9½ Weeks and Indecent Proposal, but hasn't made a film since Unfaithful in 2002. Deep Water marks his return to the screen, and also serves as the movie which triggered the tabloid-friendly romance between Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas during 2020.
The film's story sees Affleck and De Armas play a married couple who have fallen out of love and allow each other to have affairs. But their mind games seem to have deadly consequences as lovers start disappearing in mysterious circumstances.
Master (18 March)
Mariama Diallo makes an eye-catching debut as writer-director with this horror tale, which attracted strong reviews when it premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. Regina Hall portrays the first Black woman to earn the title of "master" at a prestigious New England university, while Zoe Renee is a freshman student who seemingly cannot escape the racist spectres of the institution's dark past.
Arsène Wenger: Invincible (25 March)
Were it not for the incredible legacy of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, there's no doubt that Arsene Wenger would be considered the greatest manager of the Premier League era. He won three titles with Arsenal, including the famous "Invincibles" season of 2003/04 in which the team didn't lose a single league game.
In the style of Amazon's recent football documentaries — including February's excellent Rooney — it makes extensive use of archive material and in-depth interview access to key figures in order to provide an exhaustive take on the man behind the enviable statistics.
New TV coming to Prime Video in March
The Boys Presents: Diabolical S1 (4 March)
This eight-part spin-off from Amazon's blood-soaked superhero show takes an anthology approach, telling distinct stories with each episode and also deploying a variety of different animated styles. The very starry series includes episodes written by Awkwafina, Andy Samberg and the duo of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The voice cast also includes the likes of Jason Isaacs, Kumail Nanjiani, Simon Pegg and Elisabeth Shue.
Bug Out (4 March via IMDb TV)
Insects might not seem the most obvious choice of swag for a high-profile heist, but this four-part documentary explores an unusual underworld of bug collectors, smugglers and the cops who are on the tails of them all.
Star Trek: Picard S2 (weekly from 4 March)
Patrick Stewart is back once again for a second season of this show, which features the twilight years of Starfleet captain Jean-Luc Picard. This time around, Whoopi Goldberg is back in the Star Trek world as Guinan — the role she last played two decades ago in movie outing Star Trek: Nemesis. Elsewhere, Annie Wersching is joining the cast as the Borg Queen.
Upload S2 (11 March)
The US Office and Parks and Recreation creator Greg Daniels returns for a second series of this sci-fi comedy show, which takes place in a near-future in which humans can choose to be "uploaded" into a virtual afterlife. Robbie Amell returns as Nathan Brown, who is adjusting to his life in what is supposed to be a peaceful digital heaven.
MotoGP Unlimited (14 March)
Another sporting documentary series, this will follow the 2021 Moto GP Championship, with input from the likes of champion rider Fabio Quartararo and perhaps the sport's most famous ever competitor, Valentino Rossi.
The Center Seat: 55 Years of Star Trek (18 March via IMDb TV)
Alongside the debut of Picard's second season, Prime Video is debuting this 10-part documentary exploring the legacy of Star Trek over the course of more than five decades. It explores the ways Gene Roddenberry’s series transcended its risky roots in order to become a legitimately iconic entertainment franchise.
Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls (25 March)
Pop sensation Lizzo fronts this eight-part reality series, in which 10 hopefuls move into the Big Grrrls House with the goal of proving themselves to her and getting a spot on her upcoming world tour.
Luxe Listings Sydney S2 (weekly from 25 March)
High-rolling real estate experts Gavin Rubinstein, D’Leanne Lewis and Simon Cohen return for a second, glamorous season in which they explore and sell some of the most luxurious properties in Australia.
